Free Tutorial with Flowering Cactus Purchase

I love that Stampin' Up! is an expert on coordination - both color coordination and product coordination and theme coordination. It's what first made me fall in love with stamping and all things Stampin' Up!. AND it makes creating so much easier and much more fun. The Flowering Cactus Product Medley is a wonderful collection of coordinating colors, images & sentiments, and high quality products all centered around a Flowering Cactus theme. 

I had no idea when I was first drawn to the Flowering Cactus Medley, that cactus is such a common theme right now. Take a look at some home decor items I found at Ikea and Dollar Tree. Seeing the same themes Stampin' Up! is using when I venture out of my Stampin' Peace Studio tells me that I can count on Stampin' Up! to be up-to-date with the latest trends in not only crafting, but in home decor and fashion too. What and how we craft is often a reflection of how we choose to create in our "adult" life including perhaps, how we decorate and what we wear and do. How cool is that!

To make this Paper Pumpkin Here's to You Fun Fold card, I used a Pretty Peacock card base from the kit and cut off 1" from the left side of the card front and 1 1/4" from the right side of the card front. I cut a flowered envelope liner 5 1/2" x 4" and adhered to the inside of the card base. I then cut 1/8" all the way around the scene on the Petal Pink card from the kit. I adhered this to the front flap of my Pretty Peacock card base. I also cut a 3" x 4 1/4" piece from the Petal Pink card base to adhere to the inside of the card. I completed my card by adding Pretty Peacock evergreen die cuts from the kit to both the front and inside of my card. I added my stamped sentiment with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and a double bow tied with Natural Twine.

I also took 6 tags (1 of each design) and removed the white layer, then made Christmas Cards with them - card base in a coordinating colors plus Gold Foil Paper accents is all it took. I also tied the gold cord into bows for a finishing touch.

I used the white layers I removed from the tags on the cards above with the 5 extra pine tree die cuts you get in your kits to make 5 more gift tags. I had plenty of extra labels to stamp and gold cord in my kit so didn't need to add any other supplies to make these additional tags.

Alternate Projects for my favorite 2020 Holiday Kits

There's so much to love about our 2020 Stampin' Up! holiday kits. They're fun and festive with their holiday images in fabulous holiday colors. They include loads of die cuts and embellishments. They contain color photos and easy to follow directions for beginning paper crafters or for those who are pressed for time. AND, our kits are so versatile that they are also great for experienced paper crafters who are eager to think outside the box and do some designing and creating on their own using the kit contents. 

The two holiday kits featured in this video replay of my December 9th Facebook Live are the Tag Buffet Project Kit and the Joy of Sharing All Inclusive Kit. You'll see some examples of some alternate projects including gift tags, cards, and scrapbook pages I created with the Tag Buffet Kit. You'll then see me create 2 cards and a collage with the help of my Facebook Live viewers using the gorgeous Joy of Sharing Kit. I hope you'll enjoy watching this video and be inspired to create beautiful paper crafts for the holidays using our fabulous kits from the 2020 Holiday Catalog.

Both of the kits featured in my video replay are available at great saving as they are on the Year-end Closeout. The Tag Buffet Project Kit is just $15 at 50% off the original price of $30. The coordinating Tag Buffet Stamp Set is available for $18 or subsitute with one or your own for the sentiments on your handmade tags. The Joy of Sharing All Inclusive Kit is just $24.50 at 30% off the original price of $35. So why not consider giving yourself a little help this holiday season by purchasing a kit or two for yourself or giving a few for gifts. OR how about purchasing some kits at great prices now and holding on to them for your 2021 holiday paper crafting and gift giving. Either way, don't delay, though, as these kits and all items on our Year-end Closeout are available while supplies last only. Get them while you can.

One of the most beautiful sentiments ever...

I included a small die cut poinsettia and simple Merry Christmas greeting on the inside of the card to coordinate with the beautiful card front.

I created a holiday collage as my third alternate project using the Joy of Sharing Card Kit. I think it turned out great. Add a couple photos and frame it to decorate your home or give as a gift.

As we continue to prepare for the upcoming holidays, please remember to treat yourself with grace and kindness. Sometimes we try to "do it all" and end up frazzled and exhausted. I wish you calm and acceptance. Calm from taking time to relax and destress and acceptance to realize it can be a wonderful holiday season for ourselves and our loved ones even without "doing it all". So be good to yourself. Your loved ones will appreciate you gifting yourself self-love and self-care.

Love and blessing!
